Lessons are fun, informative and a good balance between "Lets work on this skill,""Let's learn a new tune," and "Here's a fun fact!" Also made it easy to work lesson times into my, at times, insane schedule. Very encouraging and got me comfortable with actually playing in sessions at the local pub. Highly recommend.

Lee is a great instructor - engaging and fun to work with. I have noticed significant improvements in my playing over the last few weeks, and my family is appreciative too, to the point that I no longer need to hide in a remote corner of the house to practice :-)
Highly recommended.
